Hi all,
don't know how controversial this may be, but I have recently been told that the broads authority will be responsible for all planning permission and applications along our broads river banks, and I just wanted to know if this is true or whether I have been totally misinformed? I have, of course, asked the same question to the broads authority, but like all my previous emails, they have been totally ignored!
Cheers all
Mat

I'm sure that the BA would be a statutory consultee on any application. Prescott is meddling with the planning system and keeps threatening a simplyfied planning system but as usual the Department of Everything Tony and Gordon Don't Want are producing paper and hot air.

My understanding is this. Since their creation, the BA have been the planning authority for their area. That is fairly tightly drawn around the edge of the waterway, see their website for their boundary. Up to now, they have used the services of the neighbouring local authorities to process the applications. They are now in the process of bringing the process "in-house". One of the critical comments in the recent National Parks Assessment on the authority was an expression of doubt about their ability to achieve this in their planned timescale.

An important stage in the consultation process for establishing the framework for future planning decisions has fininshed today.

At the moment the BA acts via the district councils, the planning officers of which are governed by elected councillors, the BA wishes to make this 'in-house' many of us who live here oppose this idea and fail it see why the h*ll we should be ruled by those over whom we have no control. If John would like to respond I for one would be most interested to hear.

If we take Oulton Broad as an example I firmly believe that going 'in house' can only be an improvement over what is currently available. Planning has not been kind to Oulton Broad. The danger, if one has a vivid imagination, could be that the BA could carry forward personal agendas or bow to pressure from within. Personally I think that unlikely and welcome the move.

I am very sorry Peter but I could not disagree more neither you nor anyone else who has not been elected under the terms of the ‘Representation of the Peoples Act’ should be determining the outcome of local residents planning applications. Something I would be happy to fight through the High Court if necessary.

Bill, Whilst I totally understand your sentiments on this, Nimbyism has no part in development.  If the "Not in My Back Yard" Brigade had their own way the country would come to a standstill.  All countries need planned sustainable development to survive. Particularly in the case of a faltering local economy.  I would be the first to stand up for special protection over areas like the Broads but that doesn't mean that "locally elected representatives" should have total control over development.  As a Property Developer I spend half my time dealing with Planners and Planning Appeals where small minded Councillors put the electoral attraction above local needs.

The Broads Authority will need to employ well versed and experienced Planning Officers to ensure that they can meet the delivery times stipulated by central government.  Ask any Planning Officer in any local authority what their biggest problem is at this time.  You will find it is recruiting suitable people to fill the posts.  Why would a well qualified Planner work for a quasi government body when they can earn double in the private sector?

Sorry Mark you have completely lost me. We all know the problems that local authorities have finding experienced planning officiers but that was not my point. With tightly drawn boundaries why should a small band of local residents be dictated to by an unelected group whilst those next door can appeal to those who has been elected. I'm not saying that the exsisting situation is perfect, in fact there are two instances on my doorstep which are clear abuses. Much prefer however to at least have the resource to appeal to elected representatives as to what I do want in my backyard or even front garden rather than the reverse.

I take your point Bill. Not being completely sure about the Broads Authority I can't comment. I assume it's either a Quango or one of Prescott's babies. I will learn!

My point being, Bill, is that the present system clearly does not work. If it were to go 'in house', theoretically, is that instead of having offices and committees doted around the place, all working to different interpretations, we would have one office working to one set of rules and one interpretation. I would imagine that the 'committee' would have to be elected as now, a bunch of people who appear to know nothing about good design!

Jenny Morgan, the watchfull eye!
